Staying safe online
How often do you use your mobile phone or the internet? Are you a member of a social networking site? What information do you share online? Who is accessing your information? Do you really know?
While the internet helps us in lots of positive ways; enabling us to access and share information and stay in touch with friends, it also presents a number of dangers. At Burntwood we want you to be safe and responsible in the way you use it.
